Would you care to participate in an exercise to test your skills at identifying these droppings? The photographs were taken within the past two weeks while I was out scouting.

#4 is from a whitetail deer. I dropped that one in there as a tease and confidence builder. Several of the others are tricky.

Beth, I am one of them - an elder trapper who happens to be a nature photographer. In my old age as a teacher and wildlife research biologist, I have tendencies to think I am an animal urologist and gastroenterologist while scouting before trapping season - camera in hand with nose and eyes scouring the ground underfoot.

Oh, poop!

NH, I will later tonight after giving this thread time to slide out for sniffing.

Reading this type of "leftover" sign is more difficult and challenging than identifying animal tracks.

MA, Along some the trails used by a few of these critters there are staggered pooping meters that take only quarters.
